In celebration of his 40th birthday earlier this week, singer John Mayer recently had an iced out chain… made by famed jeweler Ben Baller.
The platinum-selling pop star commissioned the Los Angeles-based jeweler to created a diamond-encrusted pendant of “The Dude” from the 1998 classic, The Big Lebowski.
“He was like, ‘I have some ideas.’ He was on a plane and I was on a plane, and finally he hit me with a Lebowski picture,” Ben Baller told GQ about the piece. “And I was like, ‘What the f*ck am I supposed to do with this, bro?’ He sent me the DVD cover—it wasn’t jewelry friendly. So we talked a little bit and I was like, ‘Yo, this is going to be legendary.’ ”
Ben didn’t reveal the pricetag, but said it set Mayer back six figures.
